scored 14 points for High Point

Kevin OBrien, 113 v England, Bangalore, 2011 Has there been a more triumphant moment for the Associate world? OBriens hundred was the ultimate up yours from crickets serfs to its overlords. Nikola Jokic Nuggets Jersey .OBrien has never been one for backward steps. He once received a dressing-down from Paul Grayson when he was still trying to make it, as an MCC Young Cricketer. Grayson was the opposition coach during a 2nd XI game, and thought OBrien was excessively chirpy during a match. Grayson cautioned that being a smart-arse when you are winning was well and good, so long as you can take it when things go against you.But sometimes it takes a bit of fire to create miracles, and there was proper enmity in this innings. Like when OBrien got into a slanging match with Matt Prior at the wicket, or when he congratulated James Anderson for managing a dot ball against him. Predictably that led to both abusing each other.There was no room for meekness, though. The result was every bit as luminous as his dyed purple hair.Mohammad Shahzad, 20 v Pakistan, Sharjah, 2012 The 15,000 fans came with bagpipes, tooting horns, waving flags and carrying pictures of former Afghan president Hamid Karzai. This was a festival for crickets newest arrivals, Afghanistan, and their first ODI against a Full Member. The fans comprehensively drowned out Pakistani supporters, who had until then regarded Sharjah as their turf.Their team lost, but at least their darling, Shahzad, gave them something to remember the day by. The rotund wicketkeepers stay was brief, but one shot encapsulated his mad, fearless method, and something of Afghanistans spirit.Saeed Ajmal had arrived fresh from taking 24 wickets in three Tests against England, the top-ranked side at the time. Neither did that impress Shahzad nor did it worry him: he reverse-swept Ajmal for six off the third ball he faced from him. It wasnt a controlled, well-practised lap over the rope either, but a maniacal kitchen-sink-and-all slog. It nearly ended up on the road outside the stadium.It remains YouTube gold, soundtracked by Ramiz Raja commentary: This is worth showing over and over again… Oh, deary me. A moustachioed Afghan in the crowd, with a beaming smile, gives it the thumbs up.Peter Borren, 31 v Ireland, Sylhet, 2014 Netherlands faced an impossible task to advance to the main rounds of the 2014 World T20. They needed to chase 190 in 14.2 overs to leapfrog Zimbabwe and Ireland to qualify. Clearly they stood no chance. We didnt have much to lose, Borren said later.It was so ridiculous, so inconceivable, that William Porterfield, the Irish captain, who is usually well briefed, did not know the equation until well into the Dutch onslaught. The excessive muscularity of the batting made him regret it.Borren promoted himself up to open. His 31 was far from the headline act of the chase. Stephan Myburghs 63 was more violent and decisive. Tom Coopers unbeaten 45 was more assured and clinical (and more relevant to the prevailing narrative, given his controversial, eve-of-tournament call-up at the expense of Tim Gruijters). But the intent shown by Borren set all that up. It showed he believed it could be done and it led the rest to believe it too; in other words, a most inspirational kind of captaincy.Binod Bhandari, 51 not out v Papua New Guinea, Sharjah, 2013 Cheering in the press box is a no-no. Sometimes, though, it happens unexpectedly and instinctively. Bhandari once prompted one such random paroxysm. It was the 30th match of the World T20 qualifier, at a neutral venue in the desert. I was there for a feature on two great hopes for the ICCs development programme.With his side struggling in the chase, Bhandari arrived to the rescue. At one stage, facing Willie Gavera, the PNG fast bowler, he crouched, poked his hands out in front of him, extended his bat outwards and scooped the ball inches over his forehead. He looked like a tortoise withdrawing into its shell.There was enough pace to propel the ball over the wicketkeepers head - and 30 yards over the boundary, smack into the wall behind the sightscreen. It was sublime skill, the type with which Associate players are rarely credited, and well worth celebrating.That was just one - albeit the most memorable - of six sixes in a blistering effort that ultimately took Nepal a step closer to the big time. Mohammed Naveed, 17 v South Africa, Wellington, 2015 Even Brendon McCullum was not quite as much fun to watch as Naveed at the 2015 World Cup.Naveed owes his technique with both bat and ball to tape-ball cricket, which he played on the streets of the quiet, coastal town of Fujairah before his friends coaxed him into trialling for UAE.The side was marmalised by India in Perth. Naveed didnt care. First ball he faced, with UAE 61 for 7, he slogged Ravindra Jadeja for six. In similarly dire circumstances against West Indies in Napier, he waited till the second ball to hit one.His most fulfilling effort, though, was against South Arica. Eric Hollies is said to have predicted his second-ball castling of Bradman in 1948. Six weeks ahead of the World Cup, in a goal-setting meeting with coach Aaqib Javed, Naveed forecast he would hit Dale Steyn for six at the World Cup. Aaqib loved his spirit - notwithstanding the fact Naveed was veering away from his primary job as pace spearhead. And he made good on it, too, smacking Steyn 15 rows back into the yellow seats at cow corner. Alonzo Gee Jersey . The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. Allen Iverson Nuggets Jersey .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. . Emery skated the length of the ice and fought an unwilling Holtby during the third period of the Flyers 7-0 loss Friday night in Philadelphia. He was given 29 penalty minutes, including a game misconduct. But Emery did not face even a disciplinary hearing with NHL senior vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan because rules 46. CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Devin Peterson scored 18 points, Haboubacar Mutombo added 13, and Western Carolina beat High Point 70-65 on Monday night, snapping a two-game skid.Trailing by three at halftime, High Point tied it at 31 on Ricky Madisons free throw, but Peterson hit a jumper and a layup and Ashley Williams added a 3-pointer and Western Carolina pulled ahead 43-32. Tarique Thompsons layup capped an 8-0 run and High Point closed to 68-65 with five seconds left, but Peterson made two free throws to seal it for the Cataamounts. Mike Miller Jersey. Western Carolina (4-7) made 24 of 56 field goals (43 percent) to the Panthers 17 of 46 (37 percent), but High Point hit 26 of 35 free throws. Both teams made five 3-pointers, but High Points first didnt come until Anthony Lindauers make with 7:21 left in the game.Thompson scored 14 points for High Point (6-6), Madison and Lindauer had 13 apiece, and Jamal Wright added 12. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
